I for one do not knock Tae Kwon Do at all, it is very effective, possibly a superior martial art for what it was designed for - the fully equipped combat soldier carrying his rifle. TKD has been modified to make it more versitile in a street civilian self defense situation. That is my contention, as I was taught.tkdgirl said:First of all, I'm glad that this isn't a "my art is better than your art" thread - the last forum I was at, that's all you read when it came to TKD. Personally, I got sick of it. So far, I haven't seen that here- then again, I'm fairly new to Martial Talk.
A person shouldn't knock an art just because (for example) its main focus is sport- the next person might just be interested in getting in shape, and feel better about theirself. Besides, does that mean they won't be able to defend his/herself at any given time? I've only been in 2 different styles of TKD- one WTF and the other traditional- and both taught/ teaches self defense, not just
sport. Does anyone else?
